Connor McDavid has snapped his scoring drought, which had reached 10 games prior to Saturday. And while it wasn’t the prettiest goal, he’ll take it. So will the Edmonton Oilers, looking to snap a five-game losing skid.

Looking to make a pass in front of the Dallas Stars net, McDavid tried to send the puck across to an open Milan Lucic, who was looking for the one-timer.

The puck never made it to Lucic. Instead, it was deflected into an open net by Stars’ defenseman John Klingberg, giving the Oilers a 1-0 lead early in the first period.
